Built Environment Components (abbreviated list)• Site/building features, land-use types, place types.• Multi-modal circulation networks: walk, bike, transit, auto; and parking.• User-defined metrics for evaluating scenario performance & rankingscenarios by goal achievement.• Existing conditions SWOT analysis: Strengths, Weaknesses,Opportunities, Threats – informs goal setting & scenario assembly.• ‘Susceptibility to change’ screening: spatial focus.• Real estate development feasibility; infrastructure assessment;sustainability evaluation.

    45. 45. Scenario Planning Going Forward• More web software/mobile apps, less desktop/expert based.• Open source GIS overtakes ESRI in innovation/local markets.• BIM (bldg info models) linked dynamically with GIS/visualization toolsand analytics.• Greater availability of more reliable national datasets at smaller scales.• Hyper feedback from engagement tools/social media; too much of agood thing?• Expanded use of scenarios, especially short term problem solving,leads to greater uptake by practitioners/citizens.
